Refinitiv : European ETF Market, August 2020

Refinitiv: August was another positive month for the European ETF industry since promoters enjoyed inflows as economies and securities markets stabilized further after the coronavirus lockdown-induced economic downturn.

The combination of above average inflows and the positive performance of underlying markets led to an increase in assets under management from €843.5 bn as of July 31, 2020, to €877.1 bn at the end of August.

The increase of €33.6 bn for August was driven by the performance of the underlying markets (+€24.7 bn), while net sales contributed €8.9 bn to the increase in assets. It was not surprising equity funds (€581.0 bn) held the majority of assets, followed by bond funds (€257.9 bn), commodities products (€27.0 bn), alternative UCITS products (€5.9 bn), money market funds (€3.6 bn), mixed-assets funds (€1.7 bn), and “other” funds (€0.2 bn).
